Wikipad Announces First iPad mini Gaming Controller

Wikipad has launched Gamevice.com for its new full spec MFi controller. The company originally announced that the portable controller would be available for Android and Windows 8 devices, but according to the website it only supports the iPad mini. This makes the Gamevice the first iPad mini-only controller released since Apple added MFi support in iOS 7.

21.5-inch iMac

The Gamevice features all the standard bells and whistles as other iOS controllers on the market. It is equipped with dual analog sticks, a D-pad, four action buttons and shoulder buttons. It comes in two separate pieces that cradle your iPad mini when attached.

Gamevice.com doesn't offer a lot of info besides a few specs and a vague "coming in 2014" release date. It would be nice to know the dimensions of the device to see how much bulk it will add to your 7-inch tablet. Wikipad does promise however, that the Gamevice will work with any iOS game that supports controllers.

Pricing is also unknown at this time, but you can sign up for email alerts on the website.
